AWARD WINNING MUSICAL
“SEE ROCK CITY & OTHER DESTINATIONS”
AT SOL THEATRE IN BOCA
Evening Star Productions will present the South Florida premiere of Brad Alexander and Adam Matthias contemporary musical, at the Sol Theatre in Boca Raton, opening January 13 through 29, 2017 including a preview performance on January 12th at 8 p.m.
The stories, full of humor and humanity, and a score that incorporates pop, rock, folk and more, develops into a vivid travelogue, by building on each of the loosely woven musical stories, featuring Americans learning to overcome their fears and expectations in order to connect.
A wanderer believes his destiny is written on rooftops along the North Carolina Interstate; a young man yearns to connect with intelligent life in Roswell, New Mexico; a woman at the Alamo steps out of the shadow of her grandparents’ idealized romance to take a chance on love; three estranged sisters cruise to Glacier Bay to scatter their father’s ashes; two high school boys face unexpected fears in the Coney Island Spook House, and a terrified bride-to-be ponders taking the leap... over Niagra Falls.
This new musical won the 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical and a nomination for Outstanding Lyrics, Outstanding Direction, and Outstanding Musical, in addition to a few others.
Rock City and Other Destinations will feature Uasmin Adli, Chris Alvarez, Chris D’ Angelo, Robert Fritz, Jeanine Gangloff, Murphy Hayes and Mariah Jimenez. Tickets are $30 and $15 for students and seniors, available by calling 561-447-8829 or 561-445-9244, on line at www.eveningstarproductions.org located at 3333 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton
